Drew Barrymore Discusses Her "Rebirth"
She evaluated and cut back.
Drew Barrymore knows all about life in the spotlight, as an actress who started in the biz super-young. It can be hard to put everything down and walk away for a while, but that's what Drew said she did when she got overworked last year.
Drew Barrymore fought back against her "puppies and daisies" image, saying that they "don't accomplish anything." She's definitely challenging some of her previous personas, wouldn't you say? She changes her look at least twice a year, though, so the hippie-esque Drew could return in 2011.
Like most celebs, Drew touched on the pressures of fame, being too busy, aging, and love.
On Why She's Not Afraid to Get Older
"I don't want to be vain or fearful, and I don't think I'll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will. From my perspective, there's no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you're lucky! The alternative is death."
On Being Single
"If you're 35 and single and it's a choice, it feels fine. So I didn't settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!"
On Taking a Break
"For three years straight, I've been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didn't have anything left. I've been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I've ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. I'm thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It's cocoon, pupa, larva, and fuck, I'm reborn!"
By the way, if you haven't been following Drew Barrymore's most recent work, she talked a little about her upcoming role in Going the Distance. She says that she "talks sh-t" and that it's not a traditional romantic comedy, so I will probably catch her in that one.
Do you agree that Drew's a makeover queen?
